Strength 

Body Awareness (proprioception): Knowing body parts and understanding the body’s movement in space in relation to other limbs and objects for ‘automatic’ movement to develop.

Coordination: The ability to integrate multiple movements into efficient task performance such as ball games.

Sensory processing: The accurate registration, interpretation and response to sensory stimulation in the environment and one’s own body.

Muscle tone: Residual muscle tension which helps determine the muscles ‘readiness to work’.

Posture Control: The ability to stabilize the trunk and neck to enable the efficient coordination of limbs for task performance (e.g. bike riding).


Flexibility 

Yoga develops children’s strength and flexibility. Yoga helps strengthen children’s growing bodies and helps them improve their flexibility, which can reduce their chance of injury.

Coaching Methods 

Coerver Soccer

In the late 1970s, Dutch European Championship winning coach Wiel Coerver led a revolution in soccer coaching. He was dissatisfied with the lack of individual skills and emphasis on defensive play in the professional game; an emphasis that many thought, was stifling the more exciting, attacking style of play necessary to score goals and attract fans.

Game-Based Coaching 

We use a unique method called game-based coaching to motivate players to stay on their competitive edge. We record everything your child does in training and convert it into different scores for different games. These scores are updated and put on our website so that players have constant feedback as to what they need to work on to get better. This ensures that players are constantly looking to get better
